When it comes to planning the perfect party or get-together, you always have the stress of what your guests will think or how they will judge your party. How did the decorations look? How was the food? Was there enough drinks and enough variety? If you follow some of the guidelines on HGTV’s party planning website, you are sure to be the toast of the town.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to be alone in your party planning efforts. Even though the DIY approach could save you some money, a little help from a company like 23 Layers, one of many event planning companies in NYC could really set you apart from your friends.
As one of the top corporate event planners in New York, 23 Layers can help you with all your party planning needs. Whether you need help organizing a guest list, picking out perfect invitations, and finding decorations that fit your style, they will have you covered.
If you opt to go it alone there are many things you should consider so that you will be the envy of all your friends. Take into account ambience and decorations. You can look stylish or elegant while on a budget. The phrase “keep it simple” goes a long way with decorations.
When you are planning a save-the-date, make sure you give your guests plenty of advance notice. As suggested by HGTV, an invitation through good old fashioned regular mail goes a long way to let your guests know how important they are to you.
Other things to consider for your perfect shindig are food and drinks. If it’s an adult party, make sure to stock up on plenty of adult beverages and variety too. Depending on the number of guests that you have planned for, you can consider a sit down meal for a small group, or a larger sample size of finger foods and hors d’oeuvres, just do not forget the drinks.
Lastly, remember the entertainment. A larger group may just end up mingling and will not require entertainment, but games or some other trivial setting for a small group will set the mood for the rest of your party.
